How to Wear the Best Bridal Lingerie
This may be the shopping trip bride-to-be Kate Middleton enjoyed the most (we know it will be Prince William‘s favorite): bridal lingerie!
So what do you need to know about bridal lingerie? It should be celebratory and similar to your wedding gown, with a lot less fabric! Luxe Gal has compiled a list of our top three luxury lingerie designers for you to show off on the Big Night, and how to wear it for your new hubby!
1. La Perla. What girl doesn’t dream of the wedding night’s big reveal in uber expensive Italian silk and lace? La Perla, which has been designing undergarments since 1954, has an old world sensibility in its tailoring, and an appreciation of fine laces and fabrics. You’ll feel romantic and lady-like in the undergarment collection, which is delicate enough to be worn under your wedding dress, and beautiful enough to show off after the ceremony. Your new husband will love it so much, we’re sure he’ll want you to buy more, which is only a good thing! The best accessory for these pieces are a glowing complexion and sexy bedhead curls! www.laperla.com.
2. Agent Provocateur. Hailing from across the pond, this brand is definitely a celebrity designer favorite. Agent Provocateur’s name says it all, as they offer sexy lacy corsets with gorgeous details. Accessorize any of their pieces with your groom’s tuxedo jacket, Christian Louboutin stilettos and Cristal champagne, and your wedding night will be legend — wait for it — dary. www.agentprovocateur.com.
3. Fleur of England. Our latest discovery has just premiered a delicious new bridal lingerie collection called New Sweet Nothings; all-white offerings with elegant detailing that channel the romanticism of the 1970s. We are pretty sure this collection will make even the most amorous groom take a moment to enjoy the view and count his blessings! www.fleurofengland.com.
If you really are a Bridal Diva, forget housewares. Register with your favorite lingerie store. If you choose the right pieces you may never have to spend a moment in the kitchen because your hautest dish being served is in the bedroom!
